09 July 2018-13 July 2018




 

The Summer Clinical Attachment Programme (SCAP) of the Faculty of Medicine, CUHK will be held from 9 to 13 July 2018. This is a very fascinating and popular programme in which the Faculty receives a substantial number of applications and highly positive responses every year.

The 5-day programme of SCAP aims at providing high school students with an opportunity to broaden their perspectives in medical sciences, and to develop a better understanding to our Faculty through interaction with our staff members, students and alumni. In the meantime, high school students have valuable experience and extraordinary journey to studying and living alike medical students in the CUHK through a wide array of interactive and experiential activities.

 
 
Extract of comments from participants of SCAP 2017: 
“It changed perceptive on what I thought CUHK Medicine is and I also got to see and know the diverse personalities in the student body. In addition, I learnt about the experiences these students got to enjoy as a result of the exchange initiative in CUHK. It aspired, encouraged and made me excited to apply for CUHK Medicine.”

“(I am) More determined to be a doctor. Talking to professors is a rare opportunity that I am glad CUHK's SCAP offered. The friendly atmosphere in CUHK Medicine was really appealing to me.”
